  • Arts & Crafts Fair 2020

  • This year's Arts & Crafts Fair will be held online only! September 14-30, we will host links to artisans' work for sale on their own websites, with a special marketing push for September 26 & 27, which would have been the Fair weekend.

  • How to Apply:

    • Download an application form or apply online!
    • Submit $40 fee by check or credit card.
    • To be eligible, you must allow customers to purchase directly from you online (not by phone or email).
    • See FAQ for more.

     

  • FAQ

    • What if I already sent in my application for the in-person Fair?
      • You still need to download the new application and mail it in to us or apply online. The terms have changed significantly for the Virtual A&C Fair.
      • Your check will be returned to you.
      • You must send in a new check for $40 or we can create a web invoice for you to pay by credit card.
      • We can use the photos you already sent as examples of your work.
         
    • What if I'm not set up to take sales through my website?
      • You must have a way for people to purchase from you directly through the Internet. This can include Facebook, Etsy, Amazon Handmade, your own website or another service. We are not allowing sales by phone, mail, or email. 
         
    • Why is there a fee if this is just a virtual fair?
      • Setting up listings for each vendor requires a significant amount of time and effort on our part. Think of the $40 as advertising money — over the two weeks that we promote this and drive sales to you, the hope is that you will get much more than a $40 return for it!
    • What do I get for my $40?
      • We will create for you a listing similar to the Sample at the left. We will include your logo and keep it consistent with your colors, etc. This listing will link directly to your sales site so people can purchase from you directly.
      • Optional: you can include up to 8 images of your work that we will make into a gallery directly beneath your listing. 
      • We will do promotions from September 1-30 to generate interest.
    • How will you be promoting this? Can I promote it too?
      • We will be promoting through our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube), plus reaching out to Lexington through groups like the Mavens. And we absolutely would love for you to promote it too! You can link to your listing once it's created, plus you can share any of our posts with your email lists or your own social media!
         
    • Do I have to participate in the special promotion weekend?
      • We suggest offering something like 25% off everything or a free gift with purchase for Sept. 26 & 27, since that would have been the weekend of the fair originally.
      • It is not required, but we think there will be particular interest in shopping that weekend. We'll also be doing extra advertising for that weekend.
    • Who do I contact if I have more questions?
      • Please email us at Events with other questions.
